Mountainfilm on Tour returns to the Majestic Theater at Gettysburg College on Friday, Jan.28 at 7:30 p.m., with a selection of culturally rich, adventurous and inspiring documentary films set up as part of the 2021 Mountainfilm Festival in Telluride, Colo.
âThis evening of shorts is the ultimate in chair adventure,â said Jeffrey Gabel, founding CEO of The Majestic Theater. “You get all the visual thrills and thrills of Adventurers without any of their spills – except maybe the delicious majestic buttery popcorn in your lap.”
Mountainfilm on Tour debuted at Gettysburg in January 2020. With this latest installment of the tour, audiences can expect to enjoy two hours of short films on topics ranging from fishing to skateboarding, discussing the issues of community, recovery, lifestyle, animals and more. The presentations and the context of the films will be provided by the host of the evening. The films of the evening are rated PG-13 for language and themes.
